1974 Redline Squareback 24

24" with  Elsinore motorcycle headset 

The bike was given to me in 79ish to race in the 24" class from a bike shop in Huntington Beach ca Ralph was the owner and had always taken are of my bmx needs I raced it for a short bit till gt gave me there 1st 24" bike in 1980
Confirmed by Linn Kastan himself, and now with new forks.. for sale 50k
What a great day Just got back from linn’s he made me a set of forks for the 24” squareback he was stoked to see it and blown away by it had me bring it in He told me it’s the only one he ever made good news and set the story straight. He said there just like he made the 1st pair and had fun doing it

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing the pics and story.

Did it stay original through the years or were parts changed along the way?

Does it have a serial number?
